v3.11.0, February 2, 2021#

What’s new#

  • Backup ID can be specified when creating a replica of a single instance.

Resolved issues#

  • HA upgrades should no longer fail for MariaDB 10/10.1 HA groups.

  • Replica monitoring for Percona 5.7 should no longer report an issue with libmysqlclient_r.

  • Failures during resize should result in the instance going into ERROR state instead of staying in RESIZING state.

  • Backups should no longer go into COPY_ERROR state when the backup copy operation fails.

  • Creation date will no longer be set to None if build retries occur.

  • Redis backups should now work.

Known issues#

None for this release

v3.10.0, October 27, 2020#

What’s new#

  • Upgrading a single instance puts both the instance and its upgraded replica into a VERIFY_UPGRADE state.

    Note: Both the instance and upgraded replica remain in this state until the upgraded replica is detached from the instance.

    This keeps the data current in the upgraded replica while the customer validates that their application doesn’t have any issues with the upgraded replica and plans a maintenance to disconnect their application from the instance and connect to the upgraded replica.

  • You can set up scheduled backups to take a full backup every day instead of taking a full backup one day a week and incrementals on the other days.

  • On-demand upgrade of HA groups:

    • You can upgrade HA MySQL 5.1/5.6 to MySQL 5.7.

    • You can upgrade HA MariaDB 10/10.1 to MariaDB 10.4.

    • You can upgrade HA MariaDB 10.4 to MariaDB 10.4enc.

  • General availability of backup copy functionality for on-demand and scheduled backups.

Resolved issues#

  • Request for an on-demand upgrade of single instance is rejected if the instance is a source to or a replica of another instance.

  • The final state for a revived instance is ACTIVE instead of REVIVED.

Known issues#

None for this release

v3.9.0, August 12, 2020#

What’s new#

  • Encrypted backups for MariaDB 10.4enc instances.

  • MariaDB 10.1enc instances can be upgraded to a new MariaDB 10.4enc instances

  • Backups can be copied, on-demand, to other CDB regions

Resolved issues#

  • Restores using a backup created for a obsolete datastore version should no longer fail.

  • Upgrades of instances that have database users specified in stored procedures should no longer fail.

  • Adding replicas for Percona 5.6 HA groups should no longer fail.

  • Resizes of instances with large and loaded root partitions should have a better chance of success

Known issues#

None for this release

  • Additional options are available for the on-demand upgrade for single instances of MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 10.4:

    • You can upgrade MySQL 5.6 to MariaDB 10.4enc.

    • You can upgrade MariaDB 10.4 to MariaDB 10.4enc.

  • The API no longer allows you to specify the deprecated datastore versions, MySQL 5.1/5.6 and MariaDB 10/10.1, when building new instances or HA groups.

    Note: This does not impact existing instances or HA groups with respect to adding replicas, failovers, etc.

Resolved issues#

  • Modifying only a user’s password now works as expected.

  • The InternalServerError response has been replaced with the ACLNotFound response when you make a request to delete an ACL from an HA group with no ACLs.

    • You can upgrade MariaDB 10/10.1 to MariaDB 10.4.

  • EOL datastore versions, MySQL 5.1/5.6 and MariaDB 10/10.1, have been deprecated and are no longer available for selection when building new instances or HA groups.
